Brentford vs Liverpool: preview
Brentford head into matchday 19 in 10th place, having won 2-0 at West Ham on Friday to make it five Premier League games without defeat. That’s the Londoners’ longest unbeaten streak in England’s top division since 1939.
Ivan Toney scored his 20th league goal of 2022 in the victory over the Hammers - and the 26-year-old is in the frame to face Liverpool, despite being stretchered off at the London Stadium. Brentford head coach Thomas Frank has confirmed that the muscle injury Toney suffered is not as serious as first thought.
Meanwhile, Liverpool head to the Gtech Community Stadium on a sequence of four straight Premier League victories - a run that has taken the Merseysiders to within four points of fourth-placed Manchester United.
Having beaten Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton in their last two top-flight games before the World Cup, Jürgen Klopp’s men returned to Premier League action with a 3-1 win at Aston Villa on Boxing Day, before seeing off Leicester City 2-1 at Anfield on Friday.
New signing Cody Gakpo could be available to make his Liverpool debut against Brentford, depending on whether his registration goes through in time.
